The new Space Restaurant at Epcot was announced at the D23 Expo in 2017, and recently, construction of the new table service establishment began. The restaurant is located on the right side of the Mission Space pavilion, adjacent to Test Track presented by Chevrolet. If you’ve evert stood anywhere near the Test Track building, you know that the cars traveling by at over 60mph can cause quite a ruckus. Apparently, this is so loud and forceful that it is currently unclear how they will keep the noise and reverberations from the Test Track cars out of the fully enclosed Space Restaurant.
The project is not currently being designed or built by Walt Disney Imagineering, but rather by a 3rd party company. This company has, as of yet, been unable to figure out how they will keep all of this noise or the reverberations caused by the fast cars out of the restaurant due to its proximity. Last we heard, it was a serious concern, but construction was still moving forward at full steam.
Hopefully, they will figure this out so the tranquil views of space are not ruined every few minutes by loud rumbling. Hey, they could always time a projection of a rocket blasting off to each car passing by, right?
